PHOENIX, AZ / ACCESSWIRE / October 30, 2023 / Artemis Strategic Investment Corporation (the "Company") announced today that the Company and Danam Health, Inc. have mutually agreed to terminate the Agreement and Plan of Merger between the parties, dated as of August 7, 2023 (as amended on September 7, 2023, the "Merger Agreement"), pursuant to Sections 7.1(a) and 7.2 thereof, effective as of October 26, 2023 (the "Termination"). Upon the effectiveness of the Termination, the Merger Agreement will be of no further force and effect, with the exception of the specified provisions in Section 7.2 of the Merger Agreement, which shall survive the termination of the Merger Agreement and remain in full force and effect in accordance with their respective terms.

Due to its inability to complete an initial business combination within the time period required by its third amended and restated certificate of incorporation, as amended, the Company intends to liquidate and dissolve, effective as of the close of business on October 26, 2023, and will redeem all of the outstanding shares of its Class A common stock that were included in the units issued to public stockholders in its initial public offering ("Public Shares"), at a per-share redemption price equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the trust account including interest earned on the funds held in the trust account and not previously released to the Company to pay its taxes (less up to $100,000 of interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of outstanding Public Shares.

In order to provide for the disbursement of funds from the trust account, the Company has instructed Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company ("Continental"), the trustee of the trust account, to take all necessary actions to liquidate the trust account. The proceeds of the trust account will be held in a non-interest-bearing account while awaiting disbursement to the holders of the Public Shares. Record holders of the Public Shares will receive their pro rata portion of the proceeds of the trust account by delivering their Public Shares to Continental, the Company's transfer agent. Beneficial owners of Public Shares held in "street name," however, will not need to take any action in order to receive the redemption amount. The redemption of the Public Shares is expected to be completed within ten business days after October 26, 2023.

The Company's sponsor has agreed to waive its redemption rights with respect to its founder shares issued in a private placement in connection with the Company's initial public offering. There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions with respect to the Company's warrants, which will expire worthless.

The Company expects to file a Form 15 with the Securities and Exchange Commission to suspend the registration of its securities under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
